Maths Curriculum Evening

Curriculum Evening for parents helps to explain all about maths...

 What do you have to add together to get an excellent mathematician?  This was a question that was discussed and experienced by the parents of the Foundation Unit and Junior Department in their final curriculum evening of the year.

The presentation addressed three key questions:

·        What does it mean to be an excellent mathematician?

·        How do we develop excellent mathematicians at school?

·        How can parents support excellent mathematicians at home?

The parents were then invited to experience two mathematics lessons appropriate to their daughter’s age: one focusing on known facts and skills, the other focusing on using these to solve problems and reason.

It was a fun evening where the parents enjoyed experiencing first-hand the way teaching, learning and the standards have changed since their school days!  It was also a great way for parents and the school to work together to advance our shared aim: developing potential!
